TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR PUPPIES NEW FAMILIES
We had a wonderful experience with Shelly, when purchasing our basset hound!! I started my search for a "lemon", female basset puppy, in November, after we lost our 11 year old family dog. We had a void to fill, and knew we wanted a cute "smaller" dog (we have had english and bull mastiffs as all of our pets), that could be a great companion to our kids. I had come across Shelly's website and called right away. She had advised that they did have one female lemon available! She had answered every question I had, and even sent us pictures of her that night. I knew by the next day, we wanted her. Shelly was very easy to work with from the mailing of the down payment to the scheduling of the pickup. She has sent numerous pictures of our pup, and always kept us up to date on her progress! She welcomed us into her home when we came to pick her up and offered us all of the advice that she could. It was apparent that she loved her puppies, as well as all of other animals she had at her home. To date, she still inquires as to how our puppy is doing, and welcomes all pictures and updates we have!! I would highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking for a basset pup, or any pet!

This was the first time we purchased a dog through a breeder and I would do It all again with Shelly. She made this process extremely easy for us. I decided at the last minute what a cool Christmas gift to give my kids – A puppy! Every kids wish. I found Shelly on the internet and sent her a message. I was, however, placed on the waiting list; all the puppies due in Oct were taken. Well things ended up working in my favor and Shelly contacted me to let me know she had a tri-color available. While deciding,I had many questions and wanted many pictures and Shelly was very accommodating and sent me pictures and answered all of my questions. When we decided he was the one – I emailed her we wanted him and mailed our down payment. Right away I became the “nagging” new mom who wanted to see and hear how Mr. Chevy was growing and what new things he was doing. She always answered every email I sent and would send pictures every week to me. When the time came for pick-up, Shelly and her family welcomed us into her home and made the process a breeze. Even as of today – I send updates and pictures of Chevy and she always responds to my emails. Shelly is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for an animal. She cares and loves all of her animals. Thanks again, Shelly, for making this experience AWESOME! Katie Chapman (Minnesota)
My husband and I were trying to decide on a family dog that would be good for our children. We finally decided on a Bassett Hound. The next quest was to find one. There were only 2 breeders listed in Louisiana where we live. Neither one had puppies. So, I started searching the internet. I found a website called puppyfind.com. From there, I searched for a male that would be ready around Christmas. That is how I found Shelly. She had before Christmas. Perfect! I immediately fell in love with him. So, I contacted Shelly and we got the process started on how to get my present all the way to Louisiana. We talked on the phone and made arrangements for my special gift to fly from MN to LA. It was so easy to set everything up. So, all I had to do was wait until 12/21. The day finally came for our puppy to fly to us but we had some glitches. Due to the temp in MN, he was unable to fly out as expected. So, Shelly worked diligently to get him scheduled to fly to his new home on 12/24. We were so nervous about him making it in time. After some serious issues with the airlines, he was finally scheduled to fly out. On 12/24, after Shelly’s husband had to insist with the airport he was flying out, he finally was on his way. His first stop was Chicago and everything went fine. He left Chicago and was headed for New Orleans. Unfortunately, a really thick fog set in when he was due to land. So, his plane flew to Shreveport, La. and waited to try to come to N.O. They still were not able to land so the plane was diverted to Houston, TX. We were devastated. Our big present for our 3 boys would not be here. But, after many phone calls with the airlines, I found out he would fly in to New Orleans Christmas Morning at 9AM. By this time, it was midnight. I was so worried about him and so was Shelly. I actually called the airport in Houston to check on him. They assured me he was taken care of and was taken out of his crate and placed in a kennel so he could move around and eat and use the bathroom. So, here goes plan B. We wrote a note from Santa to the boys saying he had a special present for them at the airport b/c he was not able to fly to our house b/c of the weather. When we read the letter, they were so excited! So, we threw them in their pj’s and headed for the airport, which was an hour and a half away. When we got there, I went to baggage claim and found him with the airline attendant who was talking to him. It made me feel good that they were not neglecting him. As soon as I saw him, I was in love. So, I brought him out to the truck and placed him in the back. Then, we let the boys get out and go open the kennel and see what santa had brought them. They were so excited! They were yelling and screaming. I immediately sent Shelly a pic so she would know Brutus arrived safely and was in good shape. We have been in love with him ever since. We adore him and he adores us! He was the perfect choice for our family!! Thanks to Shelly and her husband and all of their hard work, we had the perfect Christmas! If you are looking for a family pet, the Bassett hound is perfect.

We purchased our puppy Oscar from Shelly and every step of the way was a breeze! She was great with communication (We live up in Canada) and was always quick to respond if we ever had any questions. The updated pictures kept us so excited as we watched our little boy grow up! Shelly was kind enough to let us into her home before the puppies were ready to meet Oscar for the first time. We felt very comfortable with all aspects of the transaction. Shelly is so great with animals and it comes naturally to her! Highly recommended to all, the experience was a pleasure.
